I'm blessed!

I've neglected this blog. They say confession is good for the soul, so I'll just admit it. I've thought about numerous times, but for various reasons (none of them good) didn't follow through. Lori Anderson, though, has given me powerful incentive for 2012! 384 people signed up for 200 spots in the latest Bead Soup Blog Party- and I'm blessed to be one of those. Do I deserve it? Nope, not one bit. I've followed several of the blogs from the last time and they've been posting away. Not me. I've been keeping busy with jewelry but didn't post a single word. As I waited to hear whether I'd be chosen I realized how big a gift it would be to be allowed to join in, and the odds of that happening were only about 50 percent.  And then enters this wonderful thing called Grace. I got what I didn't deserve.

One of my beautiful daughters posted this status on Facebook after a stressful and difficult start to an exam day: "The beauty of grace is that it makes life not fair". Isn't that true?

Found this on Photobucket;  kinda sums it all up...


My partner is Andra Weber- and I love the name of her blog. I've got about 2 weeks to email her and get together a stash of goodies to send her way. This is so exciting! So here's to undeserved splashes of grace and a big dash of joy...

  1. Yippee! Some how we both have found each other. I am looking forward to searching my stash for you. What colors do you like? Anything special? I've been checking out your Artfire and Facebook sites. I love your chain maille designs. I haven't gotten into that technique yet but it is on my list to learn this year.
